Providing a range of co-curricular opportunities is important to us because we value each child’s individual skills and interests, and we want to give every opportunity for students to grow and further their potential.

As we believe that the most effective way to educate children is through a holistic approach, we have many external providers to make sure that every child has an opportunity to develop their skills and potential.
